View Full Version : New Mozilla..
June 8th, 2001, 03:49
Mozilla 0.9.1 just hit a few minutes ago, grab it at Mozilla.org (http://www.mozilla.org).
So far, it's far more stable than 0.9, and the new Modern theme has to be the best browser look I've seen for quite some time..
Nah, just download a nightly..
Or, do what real freaks like me do and get it via cvs for that extra upto date version :)
BTW, you can get a nightly build from here http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
For the win32 version that only downloads the components you wish to use (say navigator only) then download http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-installer.exe however, if you want everything or just have a fast net connection (like me) you can download http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-installer-sea.exe .

Not bad... hey when did x.themes.org go down. :( Anyone recommend another chrome site.

>when did x.themes.org
Earlier in the week. Some admin for OSDN used telnet to get into one of their servers and, as you might have expected, the password was sniffed.
I simply adore the new image loading system for Moz, unlike IE it doesn't spend ages re-downloading imagines it encountered just a short while ago. The "New Thread" and "Post Reply" buttons on this board are prime examples of this. The one problem I have is that swtiching to the Modern theme makes the location bar move out of place, but this is a very minor cosmetic issue, something I'm sure they'll have worked out soon if they haven't fixed it already.

Nightlies lack support for the JRE, and right now, grabbing a nightly is so not worth it. Nightlies aren't really for average users, which is what the brunt of our forum users are, which is why I post the milestone builds.. Your post seemed to talk as if I knew not of nightlies, which would basically make me know nothing about Mozilla, which could be taken as offensive..
Enough of that, 0.9.2 is only going to be a 2 week cycle anyway..
Err, heh.. no offence meant... bit quick to jump to offence aren't ya? :p
Since i saw it as an informative post, i posted to it putting in extra info that people thought might be useful.
Anyway, as to the jre... the java support in mozilla has always been iffy and second java support in IE is better ans faster too. :rolleyes:
So nergh! nergh! ne! nergh! nergh! :p

Themes.org just recently updated the message on their page. Accordingly, you can get themes via ftp on their Sourceforge mirror:
Interestingly enough (though I don't know if it still stands), the mirror contained the themes that Apple bullied them into removing (namely, the Aqua themes).

thanks man BTW aqua happened to be my fav.

>aqua happened to be my fav
While I can't stand Aqua-flavored titlebars in E or Sawfish (Which isn't to say that other people won't like their look, I just prefer a NextStep-like theme for that), AquaGraphite is awesome for GTK. If you haven't checked it out, I highly suggest it.

I just thought I'd do a follow up and mention that Themes.org is once again open, though there's a host of scripting errors and the like, not to mention that they're not allowing downloads of specific things for fear that the person that broke in might have planted a trojan or somesuch.
For the lazy:
"We've been working very hard to bring the site back up, in the safest manner possible. To that end, many of the themes and resources are not back online as they could contain nasty little additions. Specifically, the following items are not available at this time...
sawfish themes "

Cheers for the info. I'd checked it about 2 hours previous to your post and it was still closed... Now that's good journalism.
